marcus writes in "the washington post." "obama needs some binders of women. about all those white guys: what a shame. not an outrage, but a shame. the face of power that president obama has chosen to present to the country and the world with his second-term cabinet picks is striking. except for the african-american president at the top of the pyramid, for its retro look, white and male. it's "mad men" goes to washington, except peggy's leaving. to look at the most important jobs in the government, in 2013, and see such a lack of diversity is just so drearily disappointing especially because it could easily have been so different. imagine the tableau of obama flanked by secretary of state nominee susan rice and defense secretary nominee michele flournoy. that would have been the ultimate you've-come-a-long-way moment. we've heard this since 2009. it's a guys club.

there is an urgency of the upmost importance, and i do think the obama administration and the congress needs to act. interestingly, if you listen to this debate, take up the partisan interest, you're beginning to see the emergence of my good, comprehensive discussion which is, gun owners who deplore the violence occurring with guns are beginning to say, can we strike a balance between our right to get a gun and in contol. the answer is unequivocally we can. lou: you get the last word. one of the things that disturbs me, there is room for a reason. in his room for a bounce in interest. there is a broad, this attitude that there will be doing, gun owners and those who wish to own guns a favor by not stripping their hands of those guns. >> president obama in his career as an illinois legislature signed various questionnaires, and is votes in the illinois legislature voted to support outlying over half the guns in the country already. so he's not the right person to lead us in finding a balance, but i agree that we can have -- it's not an either or. we can have strong gun rights laws so that law abidin
, obama needs binders full of women. among the headlines you did write this, to be clear, i've got nothing against white guys. some of my best husbands are white guys. white guys get to be secretary of state, too, and john kerry will be the first in 16 years. but to look at the most important jobs in the government in 2013 and see such lack of diversity is just so drearily disappointing. how disapointing is it? maybe there will be a bunch of women in these other openings? >> not only will there be a whole bunch of women, i know this will be. but the reason it's fair rather than waiting to see who gets commerce or who the next head of the small business administration is, is that these are, and pardon my language, the big boy jobs. these are the four jobs that really, really count and to have no women in them, as i said, it's not outrageous. i'm not accusing the president of being sexist or not value women but it really is disappointing now in 2013. >> and it's disappointing for you, in particular, because what a difference four years makes. we went back and got a clip. this is what you sai

is i think we need to take the bigger picture. this is not just about who president obama appoints to his cabinet. we know this country has changed demographically and a broad coalition of voters elected this president, but i think we should hold everybody accountable for making sure there's diversity. while i was disappointed to see thus far we haven't seen the kind of diversity i hope we will see when we see the full picture, i think there's a much bigger question and a much bigger issue here to which this president has been, you know, a champion of making sure that the doors are open for everybody. >> right. okay. goldie, the president's enemies, who aren't exactly famous for their love of diversity, are making a huge production out of this issue, but this president has done better or at least as well as his two immediately predecessors. he has a 50/50 split of men and women in his staff and he's appointed two women to the supreme court. doesn't that in itself regardless of the current presentation of the cabinet, doesn't that indicate a commitment to diversity? >> it certainly
